Living Our Faith: Sponsorship of Refugees

Unitarian Universalist Community Church members and friends are working through Church World Services (CWS) to support several Afghani and Syrian families who arrived in Richmond in January 2017. First, we worked to provide furniture, clothing, baby items, toys, beds, blankets, and kitchen items to ensure they felt at home and welcome here. Now, we are helping the families learn our culture, our language, general skills for living here, and their children to succeed in school. A primary responsibility is helping them network to find jobs.
